Searching for: A digital photo frame

So, I’m in the market for some digital photo frames, but can’t really find one that fits my needs. My thought is to be able to buy them as gifts for family in far off places (ignore voltage for a moment, converters are relatively cheap), and have them display pictures from my own RSS feeds.

That’s the killer — to pull pictures from my own RSS feeds. Therefore, it’s got to have wifi. Internal memory is a wash for me – great if it will cache from the network, oh well if it doesn’t. The key thing is that I don’t want to pay for a monthly service fee to use these, like [MomentoLive](http://www.momentolive.com/) and [CEIVA](http://www.ceiva.com/lmore/dpr/dpr.jsp). That’s dumb – I understand their business model, but I run my own thankyouverymuch.

If anyone knows of a product that fits these needs, anywhere from a 6″ to a 10″ screen, please let me know. 🙂

  1. ThinkGeek.com has one… http://www.thinkgeek.com/electronics/cameras/94aa/
    However it advertises that it links to a flickr RSS feed, but unless there is something super special about the flickr feed and/or the frame isn’t locked down to only look at flickr URLs, then I am sure you could roll your own. If you get one and get it going, let me know!
    Seems a bit pricey… would be cool to be able to create one of these of your own in linux or something.
